Welcome to the New Site

Well it’s been a long time coming, but finally neathings has undergone a complete face-lift. The site is now powered by WordPress and using a different host.  I must say, I am quite pleased with the results.  Now everything is combined into one site, instead of needing a separate page for neat things and webOS apps.  If you just want to look at things or apps, use the links in the sidebar, or in the menu above!

The site now has comments enabled throughout, powered by Disqus.  Feel free to comment and let me know what you think about the site.

If you find any issues with the site, or any broken links, please contact support.

P.S. A new webOS app is headed down the pipeline.  It’s a simple game, but pretty entertaining!
